Accoustic Folk Rock with layered
guitars, cello, flute,
accordion. Fresh lyrics, rolling rhythms,
sing along choruses.
Blue Valentine is a groovy liitle duo that
can be easily coaxed to perform
with other bands including their favorite touring
partners, The Infidels. George Batista (guitar,
mandolin, bass, harmonica and vocals) and
Johnna Zimmerman-Batista (guitar, flutes,
accordion, harmonica, percussion and vocals)
perform mainly in Texas but are looking to put together a national tour in 2006.
"Wake Up Call" (2003) is a collection of 17
songs recorded live at various venues around
Texas and "We See You" (2005) is the debut studio
release for Blue Valentine, with 12 original songs
including "Andrea Yates" as heard on NPR.
Blue Valentine loves to play live.
Our most memorable moments thus far
have been opening for John Dee Graham
and playing with The Infidels.
We are into all kinds of music.
We love the Pogues and Shane McGowan.
We love Nick Cave and PJ Harvey and Rodney Crowell
and Al Stewart, The Waterboys and David Gray.
We love great lyrics with music that fits them.
We want to start a rock and roll accoustic
folk revival or at least be part of one.
We are Ovation Artists.
Blue Valentine will come to you.
Also, we are looking for podsafe music to feature on our podcast.
